    Albert City Thresherman's

    So, it's been a couple decades since I've been there. Is anyone else planning to attend Aug 8-9?

    It's always cool to meet CFers in real life. Well, mostly always, anyway


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    Re: Albert City Thresherman's

    I have good memories of Albert City. Besides everything else going on, my father-in-law made a scale model of a seed cleaner and a friend of his made a tiny gas engine to power it. My father-in-law put my son's name on the cleaner as owner and displayed it for several years at Albert City along with an antique tractor on steel wheels. My son and his family timed their visit to his grandparents so as to see the show. They won't make the trip this year. The grandparents died eleven days apart earlier this year. It will be with mixed emotions whenever we visit Albert City again.

    My dad used to take me to that when I was a kid back in the '80s. I haven't been there since, but it was always a good time to see what they had.

    If you go, have a great time. I'm from the Storm Lake area and while I would not want to move back to NW Iowa, it is good to visit once in a while! :)


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.
